Purpose - SAP Accounts Payable for Beginers

One of the many features of the SAP environment is The Business Workplace in which every user can carry out their share of the business and communication processes in the enterprise. It is here where the user is able to create, edit and send and receive messages and documents. This process is enabled from entirely within the SAP environment without the necessity of going outside the system. This part of The Business Workplace is called SAP Mail and is, in fact, an internal e-mail system.

The Business Workplace has six working environments for processing documents and messages.The working environments are as follows and are flagged with symbols.
